to the view he had when he ran four years ago, that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you, will trickle-down government would work. >> governor romney has a perspective that says if he cut taxes skewed towards the wealthy and roll back regulations we'll be better off. gwen: 90 minutes later, even democrats gave the debate win to roll any. but after the dust settled, what was true and what wasn't? >> it is not possible to come up with enough loopholes and deductions to only affect high-income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it's math. >> i'm not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. my plan is not to put in place any tax cut that will add to the deficit. gwen: and will today's improved jobs numbers change the political landscape again? debating, peter baker of "the new york times," dan balz of the "washington post." jeanne cummings of block berg news, and john dickerson of slate magazine and cbs news. >> award winning reporting and analysis, covering history as it happens. live in our nation's capital, thi

to this debt problem, led us to this deficit problem. they want homeownership for everybody. we want tax cuts. we want medicare part "d." we want an expansion of safety net programs and then this is what happens. there's no one in the middle to figure out how to pay for all this stuff the middle has been getting. >> and that's really honestly what this election is about. i think one of the things that i found fascinating, although i didn't think they quite got there, is when the two candidates were asked about the role of government, because that's what elections are always about, it seems to me. i mean, yes, you know, it's about turning out your base and about this or that, but it is mostly about what do you think the role of government is? should the government, for instance, be helping people buy homes through the deduction that we can take on interest rates on the home loan? that's a legitimate argument. is that really the role of government? and if so, somebody has to pay for it, but i don't think we have yet gotten down to the basics of that. what do you want your government to do becau

into record deficits under george bush is because we put two wars and two tax cuts on a credit card. and now governor romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for? not if i have anything to say about it. that's not going to happen. [applause] we are not going to let this country fall backward. not now. not with so much at stake. we've got to move forward. we need to invest in small business and manufacturers who create jobs here in the united states. we need to recruit 100,000 math and science teachers, train two million workers at community college, bring down the cost of college tuition. we need to -- [cheers and applause] we need to cut our oil imports in half. create thousands more jobs in clean energy. we need to use the savings from ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan to help pay down our deficit and put people back to work doing some nation building right here at home. that's the agenda we need. that's how you strengthen the middle class. that's how you keep moving forward. that's the choice in this election. and that's why i'm running for a second term. that

on tax policy, energy, medicare reform, your hometown newspaper has taken to calling you senator gone. you've got one of the worst attendance records in the united states senate. now, in my capacity as vice president, i am the president of the senate, the presiding officer. i'm up in the senate most tuesdays when they're in session. the first time i ever met you was when you walked on the stage tonight. with respect to israel and palestine, gwen, the suicide bombers in part were generated by saddam hussein, who paid $25,000 to the families of suicide bombers. i personally think one of the reasons that we don't have as many suicide attacks today in israel as we had in the past is because saddam's no longer in business. we've been strong supporters of israel. if president stepped forward and put in place a policy basically that said we will support the establishment of two states. the first president ever to say establish and support a palestinian state next door to israelis. but first, there has to be an interlocking agreement you can trust and deal with. we don't have that now. with y
county have a little more time to pay property taxes. annual car tax payments due by midnight. the website that accepts the payments crashed. they pushed the deadline back to midnight tonight. to pay your car tax online, head to fairfax county.gov/dta. >>> gas prices hit an all-time high in california topping $4.61 a gallon. a attempt error shortage in supply triggered the price spike. look at those prices. over $5 a gallon. officials expect prices to continue to go up over the next few days before leveling off. prices are more reasonable around our area. everything is relative. d.c. average price is $3.82 a gallon. $3.70 in maryland and $3.59 in virginia. >>> it's the rumble in the air conditioned auditorium. jon stewart and bill o'reilly facing off tonight right here in washington. let me tell you how i will create 12 million jobs when president obama couldn't. first, my energy independence policy means more than three million new jobs. many of them in manufacturing. my tax reform plan to lower rates for the middle class and for small business creates seven million more. and
the differences between himself and zeroing in on taxes. >> for instance, he is going to raise taxes. vice president blurted out the truth. they plan on raising taxes trillion. they have already raised them a trillion. that is increases on taxes on small business, among other things. that will mean less jobs. >> reporter: on the campaign trail in ohio, president obama appeared to have a lot of fire that he seemed to be lacking on tuesday night. and accusing romney at shocking dishonesty and even though the deputy campaign acknowledged that tax cut would not be nearly 5 trillion dollars, it's something that the president repeated in cleveland. >> we put two wars a two tax cuts on a credit card. we didn't pay for them. now, mr. romney wants another 5 trillion dollars in tax cuts that he can't pay for. we're not going to let that happen. we are not going to fall backward, not with so much at stake. >> reporter: governor romney answering in the ad wars, as well. a new ad featuring melanie mack that mara that voted for president obama back in 2008. this time around she says she is going to vote
up so much that the cost of ownership now in many instances after taxes is less money than it cost to rent. the big challenge, though, is that we're not getting enough people being able to move up out of their existing houses. we're not getting enough people to relocate because they are stuck in their homes even though they are current on their mortgages, even though they qualify for their mortgages, the home is worth so much less than their current mortgage amounts they can't get out and refinance. so there's go to be a new policy that comes in to address that challenge. >> ali can i mention something about housing for a second. i want to pat myself on the back. as you know for the last year or two i've been bullish on real estate and housing. and i think that we are seeing, this gentleman is right if you look at the major markets you're seeing a rebound in real estate especially in states like florida and states like arizona. and what's interesting is the two reasons i think you're seeing an uptick is number one, you got these mortgage rates that we're going to be telling our gra
session is what to do about the fiscal cliff, this whammy, this triple whammy of tax hikes and defense cuts and social program cuts that are scheduled to take effect the first of the year. i talked to one democratic congressman, a leader last night, i ran into him at an event in suburban washington. he said, don't look for congress to do anything substantiative in that lame duck, however, they might push that deadline back, work out some kind of deal, push it back six months, and get some serious negotiations on what to do about that fiscal cliff, some time in the springtime. >> mike viqueira, thank you. >>> the spin machine is in full effect over those jobs numbers. first, president obama used his weekly address to tout that drop in unemployment numbers to 7.8. >> more americans are entering the workforce, more americans are getting jobs. >> but mitt romney on his weekly podcast this morning argued that it is just more proof that obama's policies had failed. >> we created fewer jobs in september than in august, and fewer jobs in august than in july. and we've lost over 600,000 manufac
in order to get proposition 30, the tax measure that he wants very badly to win in november. so, how did he balance his act? >> as you might recall, many years ago, jerry brown expostulated the canoe theory of politics. you paddle on the left, you paddle on the right and you more or less go down the middle in an erratic sort of way. and that's how he approached the legislation that reached his desk this year. he paddled a little on the left, paddled a little on the right. he gave the interest groups a little something here, a little something there. but he didn't give them everything they wanted. and ipd think really what was underlying all of this is not just a essenticentrism, but he want to rock the boat. he didn't want anything to have reverberation to echo and to maybe alienate significant blocks of voters that might look poorly on him, on the capitol, on the legislature. he was saving the legislature from itself in many ways, because what he really wants to happen is the voters to pass his tax increase and anything that would cause great controversy and perhaps damage his image damage
have a theory that you try and fix things in the economy, get a more efficient tax code, get the deficit down over time. that that will help you. when you give them truth serum, you're talk and you off the record, the disruption might be tough for the first few months. but they would argue that the longer term, since we're on the right track would be worth it. that's not an argument you see in the debates. it's not the way the argument gets framed. but that's the core ideological dispute in the election. >> on the other side that's been surprising is president obama, they don't talk about their big idea on the jobs. they don't talk about the jobs act. they didn't bring it up in the debates. why do you think that is? because that is a big responsive, a big idea on jobs here. >> there's a great new book called the "new new deal" about the stimulus that came out in 2009 and was almost $8 hundred billion saying it was a great success. it did a lot of things to help this recession from being worse. it's something that the president's political advisers, they do the polling. it doe
, where romney keeps millions to avoid u.s. taxes. you have to say this about mitt romney. he sure knows how to go for the gold. >> so the u.s. olympic committee was not that happy. [laughter] as you might expect. that ad was a little bit short lived, but it got a lot of free media coverage and a lot of views on the internet. and kudos to one of the leading advisers to priorities who came up with the idea for that ad. it is a lot of fun to do what we do for a living. priorities has been eager experience. as -- has been a great experience good as money flowed into the super paks in general, and also to priorities, we have played an important role in this campaign. not the kind of outside world that my colleague has. >> there is a little bit of a difference. there is a runny super pac called restore our future. i was -- american crossroads has spent more money and has been around much longer. but you can talk a little bit about the decision to do that. it came up much earlier and saw a lot of what was going to happen before it actually happened. so talk about the beginning of that. in the
people are you paying payroll taxes? that's a pretty good number. the unemployment comes from what we call the household survey, calling people up at home and saying do you have a job? are you working? are you unemployment and looking for a job or unemployed and not looking for a job. in that group it's a larger group because you have the self-employed. over the obama years, more and more people have left the labor force completely. especially older people between 50 and 56 that live off their savings and ira's before they should. some of those folks have returned in part-time work essentially in home-based businesses. about 110, 115,000 jobs are created in the establishment survey or the employer survey. but about 850 in the household survey, that would imply 700,000 or about 5% of american families have established a home-based business. it's completely implausible that that could happen. >> okay. so you say it's completely implausible and you are not the first economist to say this. and the only sample in terms of teeny fraction something like 55,000 people they call. is it possibl
duelling ads today. >> this was dishonest. >> i'm not in favor of the $5 trillion tax cut. >> romney is being dishonest here, too. according to an independent non-profit study, barack obama and liberals will raise taxes on the middle class. >> the ad is airing in eight swing states including florida and ohio. meanwhile the romney campaign ad makes a strong push to capture the woman's vote. >> in 2008, i voted for barack obama. he doesn't have my vote this time. being a woman you think about your future and your children. what i want to think about is a future that has jobs. >> the ad goes on to say the economy is important to women. >> a victory for the obama campaign on early voting in ohio. a federal appeals court in the buckeye state just reinstated early voting on the three final days before election day. the ruling means that people in the key battle ground state can continue to cast their ballots. depending on the decision of the local border of elections that is. the obama camp filed that lawsuit arguing that everyone should have a chance to vote on those days. >> and the earl
direction. >> you know, in a lame duck session of the congress we had this big discussion about the bush tax cuts. the republicans are so far off their game right now their reaction today should have been well we told president obama to extend the bush tax cuts. you can't raise taxes on the job creators. they don't even know their own talking points. what do they do now? they come out and accuse the president and the bureau of labor statistics of cooking the books. what is the new 7.8 unemployment mean for obama's campaign strategy moving forward to get him re-elected? >> well, it gives him an opportunity to really paint the picture that we didn't do, he didn't do effectively in the debate. to me, now the stakes for the next debate become really critical. the president is a town hall format. the president needs to go in there and not allow governor romney to set the debate or control the debate or use facts that aren't real. he needs to sit there and look governor romney in the eye and say listen. you sit there and tell the american people they're not better off. tell the 5 million people th
in maryland for three years, attending high school in the state, paying taxes, and applying to a college registered for selective service, and also are planning to seek full citizenship. marches like this have been going on all over for the past several months but they feel it is important now to get the word out. there are 14 questions on the ballot here in prince george's county alone so a lot of people are vying for attention for the cause. they think this will definitely help. with me now is gustavo andretti the organizing director. tell me more about what this dream act means to folks here in maryland. >> it means everything. it means the opportunity to fulfill our dreams, fulfill higher education, be who we want to be. let it be known in this country that we are accepted. that we belong. and that if we live in maryland, we have lived here all of our lives, we have paid taxes in maryland. we deserve in state tuition just like everybody else. >> reporter: and briefly what does ituúnÑgu? a marching band, attention and reasons to come out in support of this and register to vote to be
into hiding, trying to generate demand through tax cuts for 95% of the work force, gigantic checks to states to prevent massive layoffs, aid to victims of the great recession, basic infrastructure projects. then start to look and it has $27 billion worth to computerize our pen and paper health care system so a doctor doesn't kill you with his chicken scratch and writing. it authorizes new high-speed rail network, the biggest transportation initiative since the interstate highways, extended our dishing -- existing high-speed internet networks to underserved communities with imam -- modern twist of the electrification program. and research money, modernize the unemployment insurance would hadn't changed since the new vehicle. it launched a new approaches to preventing homelessness, overseeing government spending, and forecasters agree it stops the terrifying free-fall. gdp was crashing 8.9% in the fourth quarter of 2008. that is a depression. we would have lost the entire canadian economy without putting 2009. it is funny. job losses peaked in january of 2009 right before the stimulus has. tha
they might top it. >> arthel: and also a statement, romney pushing his tax policy, this weekend, right? >> reporter: of course in the wake of the debate in which the romney campaign it really defined the race, a choice between a dependency society with rising taxes that could hurt the recovery, versus the romney agenda which could cut taxes and rely fully on a smaller government and individual responsibility and entrepreneurial spirit and the romney campaign is attacking ever harder. here's a sample from last night. >> it has been calculated his tax plan raising taxes will cost 700,000 jobs. i will not raise taxes on small business and not raise taxes on middle income families. >> reporter: he will spend a little more time in florida and campaign here tomorrow and he has been doing a bit of debate prep with robhe senator from ohio and his debate sparring... playing the role of mr. obama and, monday, big foreign policy speech at the virginia military institute in virginia, and criticizing the president on foreign policy with specific criticisms of the way in which the administration han
on jobs and taxes. >> president obama says he's creating jobs. but he's really creating debt. the facts are clear. obama's four deficits are the four largest in u.s. history. he's adding almost as much debt as all 43 previous presidents combined. and over 30 cents of every dollar obama spends is borrowed, much of it from countries like china. he's not just wasting money; he's borrowing it and then wasting it. we can't afford four more years. >> why won't romney level with us about his tax plan, which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks? because, according to experts, he'd have to raise taxes on the middle class, or increase the deficit to pay for it. if we can't trust him here, how can we ever trust him here? >> brown: meanwhile, on the fox news channel last night, romney reversed course on his remark that 47% of americans don't pay taxes and, in his words, are dependent on government, so he couldn't worry about them and their votes. >> in this case, i said something that's just completely wrong. and absoluly believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about the 100% and that
is this all comes back to jobs. if we don't have people working and paying taxes, you can't fund the entitlement programs. if we f we reform them, you can't fund them if people aren't getting back to work. under governor rick scott, over 150,000 jobs created in the state of florida. >> let me address that. >> go ahead. >> i just want to address the medicare question, because it is critically important to florida. we have the largest number of medicare recipients in the country. the romney/ryan plan wants to change medicare as we know it. they want to create a voucher program. that's not what floridians want. and i think that is what we're seeing out there every day when we're out there talking to folks. they don't want what romney is trying to sell them on medicare. >> scott, quickly, one more question. how do you think president obama can court the moderate vote in florida? >> well, the president has been courting the moderate vote in florida for four years, frankly. he has been talking to folks about growing the middle class, about tax cuts for middle class, about really expand
evidence. there is the offshore tax havens, etc., and they built this story line in a swing state. the super pacs operating independently were not able to build that. you have situations in which two different super pacs would have conflicting add in the same market supporting mitt romney. one would say that barack obama is a really nice guy but he could not get the job done. in the next commercial break you have an ad that says barack obama was never a nice guy, he is a radical socialist lunatic who's trying to take your job. the more money did not feed into a larger narrative in a way that i think the romney campaign would have preferred. a second reason why it is less effective now is under sec rules, the super pac campaign are able to get lowest available rate for their advertising right now. super pacs are not allowed to do that. they are spending far more, sometimes three times as much, and to get the same money. did the third reason i think you're seeing things less effective, in the last month or two, obama's citizens are waking up and spending more dollars. a bunch of peo
's been running on this tax plan. now five months before the election he's saying his big, bold idea is never mind. >> mr. president obama, you're entitled to your own airplane and own house, but not the facts. >> i think it's safe to say the president got trounced. it was the ugliest night. >> the president is going to have to stand up and deliver. he still has a big lead in a couple of key states, but that lead will evaporate quickly. >> he has to step it up. before the debate, we had a new nbc news wall street marist poll. the president up eight points among likely voters in ohio but just two points in virginia and statistically tied in virginia. >> as the late great tim russert would say, it comes down to one state for the romney campaign -- ohio, ohio, ohio. >> now, afghanistan is always in our thoughts. but last week, there was a special incredibly disturbing milestone. the total number of u.s. military deaths in the war eclipsed the 2,000 mark. and tomorrow marks the 11th anniversary of the war in afghanistan. 11 years. >> wow. the greatest disappointment for us and certainly
